So how well do popular browsers fare in the benchmark? (all tests conducted on a 64-bit version of Windows 7)
- Mozilla Firefox 23 Nightly - 182.7ms
- Google Chrome 28 Canary - 233.1ms
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 - 143.9ms
- Opera 12.15 - did not complete the test
If you are a developer you can find out more information about the changes in the recent version of SunSpider over at the Webkit blog.Advertisement
It’s proven -IE is cheating on that specific benchmark… Just make a search and I’m pretty sure you gonna find the info or just look close the results you get. One one or two things it report close to 0.
> Opera 12.15 – did not complete the test
Strange, Opera 12.15 build 1748 64bits completes in 212.3ms on my machine (Windows 7 Pro, 64bits)
(Chrome 26.10.1410 completes in 331.9ms, Firefox 21 in 228.6 ms, IE10 32bits in 157.6ms, IE10 64bits in 129.5ms)
I only get a white square where the benchmark is usually displaying the calculations.
Whaa?..Firefox beating Chrome in a sunspider benchmark? Still don’t put that much stock in individual benchmarks, but it is nice to see how far Firefox has gone since the dark days of version 3.6.
Anyways, why did you choose the the bleeding edge channels to test? It isn’t uncommon to have bugs that may contribute negatively to benchmarks scores in those type of builds.
